Weed and beer! Beer and weed! Are the industries complementary or are they competitors? Beer sellers are concerned that as more states legalize weed, people may choose cannabis over alcohol and as a result, drive down the sales of beer and booze. In today's episode, Hayley explores these claims and talks to Bart Watson, the Chief Economist at the Brewers Association. He schools us on everything from why IPA's smell so danky, to why cannabis could impact the craft beer biz - but not in the ways people are concerned about.
